If you are not purchasing a license online, you have the option to obtain three libraries: Linotype® Originals OpenType® 2.0, the Monotype® Library, OpenType Edition 1.0, and the ITC® Library, OpenType Edition 1.0. These are complete libraries. New fonts that may later be adopted into the Linotype, Monotype and ITC libraries are not included. However, licenses to new Linotype, Monotype and ITC fonts may be purchased through the integrated online store. Fonts from other collections may also be acquired and used with FontExplorer X, such as Linotype Platinum fonts, or any PostScript®, TrueType®, OpenType as well as customized typefaces.
